Northumbria is a university which caters to all. You can start the day with a quick work out in the new £30m flagship state out of the art gym, then stroll across to for your first class of the day in one of the many modern lecture halls. For lunch the world is your oyster, unfortuntaely this is not on the menu but the students union does a sublime burger and a very cheap pint to help it go down! Once studying is over this is where the city really comes alive, with the university so close to the city centre you can plunge yourself into the way of the geordie nightlife! If you are looking for a university with a mix of social/sport/study this is the perfect university for you!
